Aqua-Guard Pens Contract with Damen

Aqua-Guard has signed a contract with Damen Shipyards of Gorinchem, The Netherlands for the supply of two large URO 300Z1 offshore oil skimming systems.

Damen Shipyards are currently building two Oil Spill Response Vessels (OSRV’s class 1050) for the end customer GeoNavegação of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

These vessels will patrol the offshore regions of Brazil and be on standby in the event of an oil spill. Each vessel will be approx. 67 meters in length with a 14-meter beam. The vessels will be equipped with one Aqua-Guard URO 300Z1 offshore oil skimming system.

Each URO 300Z1 will be fully equipped with Aqua-Guard’s patented RBS TRITON™ oil skimming technology and has the ability to recover in excess of 300 m3/h of oil.

The URO 300Z1 systems are built to Zone I hazardous explosion proof standards certified by DNV.

One major advantage of Aqua-Guard’s URO 300 Oil SkimmingSystem, is that only one skimmer head is required for virtually any type of oil spill, including ultra-viscous oils. This unique Aqua-Guard feature drastically decreases response time, increases storage space on the vessel and also increases safety of the equipment operators as minimal additional setup is required while on the way to the oil spill.
